Default ultramonkey installation issues

I followed the excellent guide for installing ultramonkey at: http://www.howtoforge.com/set-up-a-s...g-debian-lenny

I am having an issue getting my ultramonkey High Availability and load balancing server to redirect traffic to a real server (both are on the same network)
Clients get a page timeout on the web browser.

The server will redirect traffic to a web server installed on the lo interface ( of the Linux Director as a real server if I change the
lbdirectord.cf file to use the address as the real server.

The server does not direct traffic to the "fallback" server, so it appears the request and receive are working.

My Virtual IP Address is, The real server hosting the web site is

I believe I have enabled Packet Forwarding. I uncommented the line "net.ipv4.ip_forward=1" in the /etc/sysctl.conf file and ran /sbin/sysctl -p

The Linux Director Server is Debian and the Real Server is an Apache web server hosted on a Windows 7 machine. The Apache web server is configured to respond to requests on all addresses port 80 ("Listen 80" in httpd.conf).

Any help would be welcome...

My files:



    fallback= gate
    real= masq 1

(I verified the html file used for verifying the server is up does return the text "alive")


ClusterTest3 \
    ldirectord::ldirectord.cf \
    LVSSyncDaemonSwap::master \

Output from Commands:

/sbin/ipvsadm -L -n

TCP rr -> Masq 1 0 0

/etc/ha.d/resource.d/LVSSyncDaemonSwap master status

master running

ip addr sh eth0

inet brd scope global eth0
inet brd scope global secondary eth0
